Anyway, lets plough on… if you’ve got a posh “do” to go to, and your evening suit (or ‘Tux’ as the young folks call them, in the colonial style) is looking a little shabby, you might want to get hold of one of these fine Lambretta branded garments, from MyTuxedo.co.uk. There’s even a special package at £179.99 of Tuxedo, Shirt, Tie and Cufflinks, which is a bit of a bargain. I’ll stick to my kilt… but I’m very tempted by the Union Jack waistcoat, as, when I was a nipper, I was always a bit of a fan of the one sported by Tim Brooke-Taylor in the Goodies!Union Jack Waistcoat

Here’s the Tuxedo link

Caterham 7 Lambretta Special Edition

I’m a bit late to the party with this one, but here goes. As branding tie-ins goes, I don’t think Lambretta has always got it right over the last few years, but occasionally, they hit the nail right on the head.

This is a link up between two iconic brands… Lambretta & Caterham, and I think they both come out of it winners.

The union jack livery, which could have looked oh so cheesy, has been applied with a bit of a twist which really works well, and it’s the look has been carried through to the interior; seats, dash, carpets… even the boot.
It’ll be a tad faster than my old Series 2 as well, it’s powered by a 1.6 Litre Ford Sigma engine that will go from 0-60 in 6 seconds.

On sale in 2010 for £26, 995, you’d need to be pretty flush to get one, but it is kinda lovely.
